Quartek Group is an integrated design firm based in the Niagara Region offering architectural, engineering, planning, interior design and project management solutions within a single construct to clients in both public and private sectors.


Our people are brought together within a studio environment promoting interdisciplinary communication, innovation and creative acts of serendipity. All are engaged with our project throughout the entire process providing various perspectives and solutions from the outset.


Our office is located in the heart of Downtown St. Catharines. Quartek is one of the largest multidisciplinary firms based and produced in Niagara. We believe in growing and working within our community but we strive to spread our brand throughout Ontario.

Creative people in a design collaborative composing exceptional solutions


Hank (Henry) Klassen has decided to retire and put away his sliderule (and his laptop). While we’re happy for him, we will very much miss his experienced hand here at Quartek.

The last 32 years of Hank’s civil engineering career have been at Quartek (including its past incarnations as F. J. Reinders & Associated Niagara and MPS Reinders).

Hank has taken on every challenge presented and has consistently responded with reliable engineering solutions. For many years, he has provided stable leadership for our civil/municipal engineering team and exemplified quiet integrity.

We trust that you will join with Quartek’s ownership and staff as we wish Hank and his wife Selma all the best as they enjoy family, camping and other pastimes that retirement will afford. While we will greatly miss his many contributions, we expect to see him from time to time, and will periodically call on his experience and expertise.

Season’s Greetings

In a year filled with challenges, we’re grateful for your support.

Wishing you happiness & health in 2022.

Our office will be closed on December 23rd at 3pm and re-open on January 3rd. Our team looks forward to continuing to serve you in 2022!


It is with best wishes (and some reluctance😉) from the ownership, directors and all staff at Quartek, that we announce that Norman Ocampo, Director of Architecture, is retired from full-time practice. His distinguished career has included almost 21 years here at Quartek as designer, project architect, project manager, shareholder, mentor and leader. Norm has consistently provided stable, yet passionate, leadership for the architectural team and the company as a whole, frequently challenging us all with ways to grow as individuals and as a team.

We trust that Niagara’s architectural design and construction communities, along with Norm’s many clients and other contacts, will join with us as we wish Norm all the best as he enters retirement, and as he pursues new interests and pastimes. While we will greatly miss his many contributions, he has promised not to be a stranger and to continue to contribute as a valuable resource for periodic consultation and assistance with strategic initiatives.

Meanwhile, our experienced and diverse team of professionals and technical staff continues to be ready, willing and able to follow Norm’s lead in providing first class building design and project management results.
